Doctrine, not dialogueBy Larry Toner Bledsoe, Ky.
In “Why I Officiated a Same-Sex Ceremony” (May 28), Joanna Harader mentions the need for premarital counseling “to see if this will work.” The Apostle Paul gives specific information about the marriage relationship in Eph. 5:21-33. I’d like to know how she whittled that peg down to make it fit. Maybe the larger question isn’t about homosexuality at all. Maybe it has to do with biblical truth: What was God saying before cultural correctness became popular? Biblical truth always trumps human wisdom. It’s about what God says, not how we want to interpret it (2 Peter 1:20-21). It’s time to stop standing around like Pilate asking, “What is truth?” (John 18:38) and muster up the courage to challenge error. God help us if we allow “dialogue” to replace sound doctrine in confronting sin.
